DIY Barstools Using only 2x4s

Directions

Follow the steps below to complete this project.

1

Build the Seat

Using your Kreg Jig drill pocket holes in the 3 pieces that make up the seat. Drill your pocket holes 2-3 inches away from the ends and attach with pocket screws. You will want to leave room to attach the legs later.

2

Cut and Attach the Legs

The cuts you make for the legs should be beveled at 10 degrees and parallel. Drill pocket holes on one side ( on the longer end of the bevel). This is the side that will attach to the seat. Attach with pocket screws. Use wood glue on the seams. Attach the legs flush to the outside of the seat.

3

Cut and Attach the Large Crossbars

The 2 crossbars are mitered at 10 degrees, not parallel. After making the cuts, drill pocket holes on both ends and attach the crossbars to the legs. I attached them 5 inches from the bottom and flush with the outside.

4

Cut and Attach the Small Crossbars

Cut the small cross bars. Drill two pocket holes in opposite directions, then attach them with 2 1/2 “ pocket screws.

Paint and Enjoy!
